The UK fertility postcode lottery

In the UK, the NHS has advised that 3 cycles of IVF should be provided for infertile couples.

BUT. This does not happen.

In our locality- only one IVF cycle is funded. 1 hr away, in a different locality, two IVF cycles are funded. But unless I live in that other locality, we can’t access the two free NHS IVF cycles.

There is a postcode lottery in this country. This article explains any questions you might have!
